AMD and Viettel High Tech, a unit of Vietnamese operator Viettel, have completed a 5G mobile network field trial. The deployment was conducted by Viettel and powered by AMD Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC devices. Viettel currently serves more than 130 million mobile customers. The Viettel 5G mobile network deployment is scheduled for completion by end-2022. 

AMD is the exclusive radio unit  silicon supplier for Viettel’s indigenous 5G radio development. After the completion of the first field trial, Zynq MPSoCs are now set to be extended to an additional 300 Macro 8T8R base stations and 900 5G 8T8R Macro radios. The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC was also chosen by Viettel for its 64T64R Massive MIMO radio which is currently being optimized for field trials. Viettel is developing the next generation of radios to also include Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC devices.
